Thank You, Green Bay!

No, I’m not thanking Green Bay for anything the Packers have done recently! I’m sending my sincere thanks to all the good folks up there who hosted a couple of wonderful catechetical events that they invited me to speak at. On Wednesday, October 26, I spent the evening with about 250 catechists in Appleton, WI, talking about The Catechist’s Toolbox. What an outstanding turnout! The next day, I spent the morning with about 75 catechetical leaders at an event sponsored by the ProCLAYM organization ( the association of Professional Catechetical Leaders and Youth Ministers for the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay) looking at The Bible Blueprint and Practice Makes Catholic. I can’t say enough about how professional and friendly everyone was and how the greatest attention was given to even the smallest detail! Job well-done folks!
